We'll definitely have to agree to disagree on this. Not only are a lot of MST-ed films quite good films considering their budgets, short shooting schedules, and the era in which they were made (one example off the top of my head: The Phantom Planet, which is reminiscent of the classic Men Into Space TV series currently being posted on the IA), I've also known a few people whose work has been MST-ed, and while they do indeed have a sense of humor and don't take themselves or their films all that seriously, they were also deeply hurt by the personal nature of some of the remarks made about them on MST3K. Laughter at the expense of another is not too cool in my book.

That's true. Film makers have feelings too. Sometimes it's too easy to forget that.

Bert I. Gordon once said, "my films are like my children." I believe he finally somewhat accepted the MST3K attention he got, but I have to say that I think his Amazing Colossal Man is still one of the best films ever made by AIP.

I'm happy to finally be able to get most of the movies I like (when possible and if they are PD) without those little guys at the bottom of the screen.

I've been so overwhelmed the past few days, I hadn't realized just how *bad* that subject line came off.

Nevermind.
